Lcpl. Mendel S. Fowler USMC

If you were a friend of the show in 2010 and 2011, you couldn't avoid being captivated by an ol' vet from Hickory, NC.   Mendel Fowler became a friend to us all.  His service to our country not forgotten.  His friendship cherished.   Mendel died on Thanksgiving last year.  Today, Friday April 6, 2012 he received full military honors as his remains were interred at The Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia.   Today's blogcast is in honor of our friend.

First time I met Mendel at a Clemson Baseball game April 2010.  He gave me the hat, a Marine tie clip

Mendel and a fellow Marine in Vietnam circa 1967.  That's Mendel with the weapon.
